Betting on the Utah State Aggies (17-6 Overall / 6-4 Conference)
The Aggies are coming into the rematch with San Diego State riding a wave of momentum, as they have won all of their last three games. That stretch includes their 68-45 win over the Wyoming Cowboys on the road last Tuesday. Utah State lost to the Aztecs earlier this month at home, 77-68, which was a game that the Aggies appeared to have forgotten how to drain shots from deep. They went just 6 of 23 from behind the arc in the loss to San Diego State, though, that could also be taken as a sign to stop forcing their shots from there and instead find easier options on offense. Utah State is among the last teams that need that kind of lecture though. For one, the Aggies are 26th in the nation with 15.3 assists per game, and even though they were a mess in shooting the ball from long range against San Diego State in the first meeting, 22 of their made field goals were off assists.
The Aggies are 3-0 against the spread in their last three games overall.
Betting on the San Diego State Aztecs (21-0 Overall / 10-0 Conference)
The Aztecs added another to their growing list of victims, as they took down the New Mexico Lobos on the road with ease, 85-57. KJ Feagin starred for San Diego State, as he scored 18 points and hit six 3-pointers in 25 minutes. The Aztecs went bonkers from deep, hitting 15 of their 33 3-point shots. New Mexico was bad defensively, but even if the Lobos stepped it up a notch on that end of the court, it probably wouldn’t have mattered in the end, as San Diego State is just an offensively gifted team that ranks 16th in the nation in adjusted offensive efficiency, per KenPom. The win over the Aggies saw San Diego State showing just that, as they shot 50.9 percent from the field and went 9 of 20 from the 3-point region. Malachi Flynn, who’s the team’s leading scorer and assist-man this season, had 22 points and five dimes in that win over Utah State.
The over is 2-1 in the Aztecs’ last three home games.
San Diego State wins, 72-61.
